>>>>>>WEEKLY B&W thread<<<<<<<<<<
Jan 21, 2012

There was a post a couple of hours ago hours ago by carizi, wondering:

Whatever happened to the B&W thread!!!!???????

I hope all is well with Jim, who usually hosts.

So, OK I'll start it, even though I haven't done much B&W.

Remember to change the subject line so folks can identify what photo is being commented on.

It looks lonely but big enough to take care of itself.

A few from my new FZ150. B&W brought these above mundane, I think. I've had a hard time making some pics to like, mostly due to weather, and a few of my own mistakes.

Little Bridge
In reply to Erik Ohlson, Jan 21, 2012

Yes, where is Jim? We miss you, Jim! Thanks Erik for starting this week's thread.

Here's one I took last March. This little and low foot bridge goes over a creek that routinely floods. This is in a Fish and Wildlife hunting area in the Snoqualmie Valley outside of Seattle. Wear your mud boots! LX3.

Walk - LX-5
In reply to Erik Ohlson, Jan 22, 2012

Hello Erik and everyone

Thanks for starting this thread Erik. Indeed, hope all is well with Jim.

Well, on my way to the city library - cold day for bay area California - caught a father & son briskly walking by. LX-5 shot from hip. Converted to B&W - added diffusion.

Cheers
Rick

I've noticed Jim's absence for a couple of weeks now......I'm a bit worried and hope everything's ok.

I don't usually post on the b&w thread because I don't do much b&w, but want to do more.

In reply to Erik Ohlson, Jan 22, 2012

Hi there,

Last Friday I visited the motor museum here in Abu Dhabi. I saw this and thought of Lee's glass model of an earlier model (?) and Bruno's fondness for old cars.

It was really dark in the museum, and the placement of barriers and lighting columns made it very difficult to get a decent, uncluttered photo of many of the cars & trucks on display.

Here's a B&W conversion (with colour original for comparison) of the best I could come up with on the day.

As you can see, I had to ramp up to ISO 800, so there's quite a bit of noise. Ah well!

Best regards,

Paul
